Fodor's Review

In a town dominated by historic properties, the Aurora is refreshingly contemporary, with a hip attitude and sleek furnishings. Done up in shades of chocolate and sky, the standard rooms are small but inviting, with high-tech touches like flat-screen TVs. Suites have jetted tubs or elaborate showers—the spacious Aurora Suite is a great splurge. There are striking ocean views from the rooftop deck. Unwind after a day of hiking or boating with a Mermaid's Kiss massage—a blend of Swedish, Japanese, and Thai techniques—at the spa. A complimentary continental breakfast is included.
